    Hi,

    I have uploaded a build from AppBuilder to iTunes Connect. But iTunes Connect determined that the localization's are 'English and German' but the app is in dutch only.

    Somebody can some information about changing the localizations to 'Dutch'?

    Hello Robert-Paul,

    There are a few keys in the Info.plist file which provide information about the app language:
    • CFBundleDevelopmentRegion - this key specifies the default language and region for the bundle, as a language ID.
    • CFBundleLocalizations - this key identifies the localizations handled manually by your app. If your executable is unbundled or does not use the existing bundle localization mechanism, you can include this key to specify the localizations your app does handle.
    In your case you might need to change the value of the CFBundleDevelopmentRegion. I would also encourage you to take a look at how to display your app in the store in more than one language.

    In AppBuilder you can edit the Info.plist file following the instructions in this tutorial. Let me know if you need more information.

    Hello Robert-Paul,

    This thread is a bit old but I still wanted to follow up on it and elaborate on the issue. As AppBuilder builds hybrid apps on top of the Cordova framework, it depends on the Cordova project template when creating the structure of the iOS projects and applications.

    Cordova 3.5 includes English and German localization files in the iOS project template which is why iTunes Connect and the app store reflect these languages as the app languages. These localizations are removed from the iOS project structure in Cordova 3.7 and as soon as AppBuilder is updated to support the latest Cordova version, you will be able to use the CFBundleLocalizations key to control the languages displayed within AppStore and iTunes Connect.

    At the moment I can't commit to a specific timeframe for the Cordova 3.7 support within AppBuilder but we will do our best to release this feature by the end of the year.

    Hello Tina,

    Thank you. Indeed, changing the value CFBundleDevelopmentRegion doesn't work. I'm looking out for Cordova 3.7
